This document contains the latest information about the protocols, preventative measures and changes adopted in Norway in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

This document was updated on Friday 17th July.

From 15 July, travellers from the United Kingdom can travel to Norway. Sunvil has offered holidays here since 2008. Norway inspires images of dramatic, rugged mountains, fjords, picturesque villages and a landscape that is second to none. In one of Europe’s most sparsely inhabited countries, these elements are reality. Norway inspires images of dramatic, rugged mountains, fjords, picturesque villages and a landscape that is second to none. In one of Europe’s most sparsely inhabited countries, these elements are reality. Stretching from the North Sea coastline to the borders of Finland and Russia, this delightful country is largely unexplored by UK visitors. Travel off the beaten tourist track and you will discover a country rich in history, charming small towns and friendly locals.

Since lockdown was announced, and before, we have been closely monitoring government guidance, regional policies and have maintained a continuous dialogue with our colleagues in Norway. Below we have highlighted the facts and guidelines. It is important to note that guidelines are being updated daily and you should contact us should you have any specific questions or concerns.

Flying from the UK

UK departure airports are trialling a number of new protocols for travellers at the moment for example at London Heathrow temperature screening trials in Terminal Two, airlines have relocated between the airport’s terminals to ease congestion, social distancing is being employed throughout the buildings, hand sanitiser is available throughout and face masks are available for travellers to use.

No matter the airport, you can rest assured that they are working with Public Health England (PHE) to ensure the wellbeing of everyone working or travelling through the airport.

 

What you can do:

  • Only travellers should enter the terminal buildings
  • Minimise your hand luggage to one piece per person
  • Allow yourself time to pass through the airport i.e. check-in - security - departures - gates
  • Come prepared with snacks and books. It is likely, initially at least, that airport shopping opportunities will be limited.

Flights

Airlines are working in line with EASA, IATA, DGS and UCS, to ensure the health and safety of their passengers. You can find the steps each airline has taken below:

  • Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS)
  • British Airways
  • Easyjet
  • Ryanair

General advice

Social distancing guidance remains in force. There are restrictions on public events and large parts of the hospitality and service sectors. Establishments serving food are allowed to open but social distancing restrictions apply. The Norwegian authorities have issued recommendations that people avoid using public transport unless strictly necessary.

Swimming, beach life and outdoor activities

Water parks and swimming pools were able to open to the general audience from June 15th, provided that sound measures for infection control are followed.

There is no risk of covid-19 transmission via the water during swimming in fresh- or sea water. Yet it is important to keep the general advice on hygiene and social distancing in mind. Try to find beaches or swimming areas without too many others. 

For outdoors activities such as camping, hiking, biking, horseback riding etc, the general advice for infection control applies.

Camping, farm holidays and other types of adventure holidays can be carried out as long as you follow the general measures for infection control.

Sunvil's support

Sunvil’s destination specialists have toured Norway and know the country inside out. The team consisting of Rosanna, Michelle, Yasmin, Cristiana, Alison and Bekki, are supported in-country by our local agent.
